A DVD containing the Halogen software is included with your HAL System hardware. If you’re like most people, however, that DVD is gone – accidentally tossed in the recycle bin along with the cardboard box. If that’s the case, no need to worry. Simply go to the Rane website at rane.com/hal and download the software, free-of-charge.
note: You must be logged in with administrator rights to install this software.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Rane Corporation\Halogen(If running 32-bit Windows Halogen is installed in the "Program Files" directory). Select or deselect the options to create a desktop icon and/or a quick launch icon. Click Next.
note: There are a number of processes that are required for Halogen to function properly. It is important to verify that none of these files were blocked by your firewall or virus protection software.
Click Finish to complete the installation and open Halogen.
note: There are two versions of the Halogen installer on the Rane website. The web installer and the single file installer. The web installer is a smaller download, but during the installation it requires an Internet connection to complete the installation. Sometimes this approach fails or is impossibly slow. If your web install is slow or fails, spend the extra time to download the larger, single file installer. It often avoids the speed bumps possible with the web install version.
Also, use the single file installer or copy the install DVD contents to a network server to most efficiently install Halogen on multiple computers
A splash screen displays until the application loading completes.
note: If the application fails to start, verify that all required ports are available and that all required processes are installed and available.
